Thanks for clarifying, MrFlibble.

I'm aware that some act as both a gate/supressor (Smart Gate does I believe), but I knew not all did.

No they aren't.

I'll agree that many pedals incorporate elements of both, but that doesn't make them equivalent.

I'm surprised, you're generally pretty good at the more technical elements, but you're way off in left field on this one.
